COVINGTON, La. – A man who is abusing a girl for more than a year when she was 4 and 5 years old has been found guilty in Louisiana.
District Attorney Warren Montgomery says the jury found the 28-year-old Scott A. Barr guilty Friday of two counts of sexual battery.
According to a press release, the crime came to light when the child complained about pain in her genital area and told her mother that Barr had touching her.
The mother contacted the police, and the child revealed during a forensic interview at the Children’s Advocacy Center, that he had touched her and made her touch him.
Barr faces up to 10 years in prison on each count and sentenced by the District Judge Scott Gardner.
